The Lyrics

Ode to the Lottery
You'll Lose Again
(Ode to the Lottery)

Well come on all of you suckers play
The lottery system is here to stay
They say it makes big money for our schools
And if you believe that then your big fools
Just lay down your buck and hope for some luck
And you'll lose again

And it's one, two, three,
What are you playing for
Please tell me I don't know for sure
But once you start there ain't no cure
And it's five, six, seven,
If you ever do break even
You better stop there while you're still square
Or you'll lose again

Well come on people let's move fast
That Super Jackpot is here at last
There's millions and millions to be won
Cause there's millions and millions who'll be so dumb
As to lay down their buck and hope for some luck
And they'll lose again

And it's one, two, three,
What are you playing for
Please tell me I don't know for sure
But once you start there ain't no cure
And it's five, six, seven,
If you ever do break even
You better stop there while you're still square
Or you'll lose again

Well, it doesn't make sense to play that way
Instead save your money for a rainy day
In a few years while others still chase that star
You'll have enough saved to buy a used car
And maybe by then you'll understand
Not to play is to win

And it's one, two, three,
What are you playing for
Please tell me I don't know for sure
But once you start there ain't no cure
And it's five, six, seven,
If you ever do break even
You better stop there while you're still square
Or you'll lose again

Bob, glad to see somebody use this great old CJ McDonald & Fish song here. 5's across. Out here in Californee we have a Lottery, too. But I only play it about twice a year - $2 or maybe $3. Do it when I house-sit for a friend who asks me to buy him a $3 ticket for each drawing. I usually house-sit for him twice a year and I buy my little ticket when I get his. Got $1 back out of my five this year. That's probably about average or perhaps a little better than average for most folks I would guess. Real good investment there.
